the weekend is going to end very nicely. i'm happy to say. and not going to be quite as windy as today. because the winds picked up a little bit. and temperatures are close to seasonal and we were going to watch a couple of systems that are going to make an impact on our weather pattern as we head head -- through the beginning of the week. and we did okay know. and here is a look at the fox accokeek satellite radar composite. and clouds are pushing through and they will get out of the way as high pressure continues to build in from the west and that gets us to very, very clear conditions in the course of the overnight hours. here is a look at the wind today. they did pick up quite a bit. gusting at 29 miles an hour at reagan international airport. 26 at dulles. and 24 at bwi thur goode marshal. so if you felt things moving around today, you're absolutely right. the winds were a little bit on the stronger side. the high today 78 at national. 78 at dulles. and 77 degrees at bwi.
12:24 am
temperatures are just a couple degrees below the seasonal average. overall, it was very comfortable outside. we didn't have any humidity to deal with. that's always a good thing. currently, 55 degrees at national. 60 at quantico. and we've got 56 to the south at fredericksburg. and martinsburg at 55. 54 at winchester. 52 at gaithersburg. bwi at 59 degrees and 63 degrees at annapolis this hour. we're talking about a ridge of high pressure that will continue to build. in and sunday, we will see plenty of sunshine for you. but we got to keep an eye on a couple of systems. pushing up from the south. another one from the west. this is a pretty strong frontal system. it looks like we will see some rain gradually moving in, into the course of monday. as the day progresses, the rain chances are going to increase. i don't think they're going to start too early in the morning hours. i think it will be probably more later in the day that we will have to zeal with it but stick around and -- deal with it and but stick around and a soaker coming into tuesday with
12:25 am
the same system. be aware of that if you're planning anything outside. in the tropics, we have a hurricane. category one hurricane nadine. which is actually about 1080- mile, as you can see, away from bermuda, however, it is not headed that way. good news for them. it will take a northeasterly curve right to the azores. they will be in the path of this. and it will start to lose its strength and become a tropical storm as we move through the beginning of the week. and no threat to anywhere along the east coast of the u.s. so for tomorrow, we're talking about 74 degrees by about midday. with some light wind for you. plenty of sunshine. tonight, 57 degrees in the overnight hours. light northerly wind flow. partly cloudy skies. and as we move through into tomorrow, mostly sunny conditions as i said and not as windy. 79 degrees. not too bad. a pretty pleasant day for you. here is a look at the fox 5 seven-day forecast. tomorrow is a great day to end

the weekend. we start to see temperatures just picking up and kind of going down a little bit once we get through the mid part of the week. tuesday is the day where i really want you to keep your eyes to the sky. we're looking at thunderstorms as a possibility there. and then we get back to drier conditions again. so overall not bad at all. >> it seems like this is the weather system that we will see the temperatures like this from here on out, i hope. >> it looks like it. we might see a couple more 80 or so degree days coming up but don't expect any 90s. i will be surprised. >> thanks, gwenn. a reminder, you can check the weather any time when you download the fox 5 weather app. search for dc weather on your smartphone. it is on our web site at still to come, they say age is just a number, one grandma is proving that. and showing she is young at heart. at the spry age of 80. plus coming up on the news edge, we have the latest on the consulate attack investigation. what the white house is saying about it that republicans are not buying. that's all coming up in just minutes.
